Higher Education and Its Role in New Hampshire

On Wednesday, Dec. 11, the Carsey School of Public Policy will host James W. ("Jim") Dean Jr., President of the University of New Hampshire, for its monthly Coffee & Conversations discussion. Dean will discuss Higher Education and Its Role in New Hampshire.

Dean became the 20th president of the University of New Hampshire in June 2018, elected unanimously by the University System of New Hampshire Board of Trustees to lead the state’s flagship public university. Dean believes that the nation’s public universities must rethink their efforts to better serve the public through teaching, research, and engagement, and he adds that UNH is well-positioned to strengthen and even redefine its role as a leading public research university. Since joining UNH, he has met with hundreds of members of the university community, alumni and donors, New Hampshire business leaders, state lawmakers, and state residents to discuss UNH’s challenges and opportunities.

Join us on Dec. 11, 8:15 – 9:30 a.m., at the UNH Franklin Pierce School of Law, Room 204.

Carsey’s partners in Coffee & Conversations include the State of NH Bureau of Education and Training and the NH Association of Certified Public Managers.
